Observations from Browns minicamp: Thursday's second practice

By Nate Ulrich Published: June 10, 2010

Here are some of the notes I took during the second practice of Browns minicamp Thursday in Berea:

  • Cornerback Eric Wright was on the practice field, but he didn't participate. Wright walked off the field with a trainer during the first session of the day. Browns coach Eric Mangini said Wright suffered from "tightness" but didn't reveal more than that. Wide receiver Jake Allen worked out on a stationary bike. The other injured players who were listed in my observations from the first practice remained the same.

  • Overall, the Browns offense performed better than it did in the first practice, sans a handful of interceptions. Quarterback Jake Delhomme routinely connected with Brian Robiskie, who looked good despite dropping one pass.

  • Defensive back Coye Francies had a great day. After breaking up two passes in the first practice, he had two interceptions in the second session. Both times he picked off Seneca Wallace.

  • Defensive back Nick Sorensen had two interceptions -- one by Brett Ratliff and another by Seneca Wallace.

  • Rookie cornerback Joe Haden broke up a pass by Ratliff. Defensive back Chris Roberson did the same.

  • Delhomme hit receiver Josh Cribbs for a long completion. Cribbs made a nice over-the-shoulder grab.

  • Offensive lineman Tony Pashos was penalized for a false start. He ran laps around the practice field as punishment.

  • Cribbs twice lined up in the wildcat formation and took a shotgun snap. The first time, he made a horrible throw that basically went straight into the ground. The second time, he hit Seneca Wallace with a pass in the flat, and the players on the sideline cheered loudly.

  • First-team offensive line during the second practice: Joe Thomas (left tackle), Eric Steinbach (left guard), Alex Mack (center), Floyd Womack (right guard) and Pashos (right tackle).

  • Browns President Mike Holmgren watched both practices. At one point during the second session, he looked toward a group of reporters who were sitting down under the shade and said, "There's no sitting in practice." I was included in the guilty party.
